The date your holiday starts determines the relevant rate for your stay.
Our changeover days are usually Friday and Monday but we can consider other days.
Short breaks (3-night Friday-Monday weekend) and (4-night Monday-Friday midweek) are bookable in advance.
*During Bank Holiday weeks and the summer half of the year (April to the end if September) advance bookings for short breaks are not always possible. Please give us a call if you want a short break during the summer if the booking tool will not allow you to book it.
Price for a fortnight
The second week is reduced by approximately 15%. If you would like to stay longer do consult us – depending on availability and time of year we will try to come up with something attractive to you and fair to us!
Price for a ten (or eleven) day holiday
This is the best value of all, as long as you are happy not to have a mid-break clean or linen change… We charge the relevant weekly rate plus a flat rate throughout the year of £225 for the extra 3 or 4 nights .
Some hopefully helpful reminders…
Our (approximately) 5% off the current price for all returning guests still applies.
The price current at the time of booking always applies, even if you are booking more than a year ahead. (NB See our T&Cs for our cancellation policy).
Price for all short breaks is calculated at very roughly 70% of the relevant weekly rate.
Throughout the year we offer 3 or 4-night short breaks, which can be booked in advance. 3 nights: Fri/Sat/Sun nights. 4 nights: Mon/Tues/Wed/Thurs nights. The price for short breaks, when available, is approximately 70% of the rate for the relevant week, rounded up or down as seems simplest so we’re not dealing in fractions. If you would like a short break and the booking system will not allow you to make it please give us a call to discuss. We are very flexible and hope to meet customer needs and can sometimes accommodate a 2 day stay.
We strongly recommend taking out insurance against your having to cancel your booking due to some unforeseen situation arising. If this happens, The full fee is still due (and not refundable if already paid) unless we are able to re-let the dates. We will always try our hardest to do so, possibly at a discounted rate, but cannot guarantee that we will be successful. To avoid the possibility of mutual embarrassment and hardship we strongly advise you consider taking out cancellation insurance unless you are prepared to take the risk. Any insurance firm should be able to provide this. If it would help we can provide information about the Pavey Group UK Holiday Protection Plan (which is a preferential scheme for Premier Cottage guests) or you can download a PDF version yourself – see the link.
And after all this we do hope you will enjoy a wonderfully relaxing and hassle free holiday here!
